Video description: "Over the past week, I listened to you, and in the process, I found my own voice. You helped remind everyone that politics isn't a game. This campaign is about people, about making a difference in your lives. It's time we had a president who stand up for all of you."

Carol Sue Shields was brutally murdered by Wayne Dumond.
Dumond was in an Arkansas prison for raping a 17 year old high school cheerleader, until Governor Mike Huckabee helped him get out. Thanks to Mike Huckabee, Dumond was released from his Arkansas prison. Then, less than one year later, he raped and murdered Carol Sue Shields.
Lois Davidson: 'If not for Mike Huckabee, Wayne Dumond would've been in prison and Carol Sue would be with us.'"

Video description: "ClubforGrowth.Net Releases New Huckabee Ad in Michigan
Washington -- Club for Growth.Net will begin running a new television issue ad tomorrow in Michigan, educating the public about Mike Huckabee's tax-and-spend record and urging people to call Mike Huckabee and tell him to support a permanent moratorium on taxation of Internet access. As governor, Mike Huckabee joined with two Democratic governors in opposing a federal ban on Internet taxes, saying a federal ban would amount to "putting a federal stop sign onto a state road."
Using a folksy humorous tone, the $200,000 ad buy demonstrates just how liberal Mike Huckabee's record was on taxes and spending. In fact, his economic record looks a lot like that of another governor from Hope, Arkansas—Democrat Bill Clinton. Besides increasing spending by 50%, Huckabee's support for higher taxes included:
· Sales tax (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 10/17/96)
· Gas tax (Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 04/02/99)
· Grocery tax (Associated Press, 09/11/02)
· Taxes on nursing home beds (Associated Press, 06/25/01)
· Taxes on Internet access (Reuters, 02/23/04)
"Mike Huckabee argues that he is an economic conservative because he cut taxes ninety times, but he doesn't tell the American public that his tax increases far surpassed his tax cuts," said Club for Growth.Net President Pat Toomey. "Given Mike Huckabee's persistent dissembling, Club for Growth.Net feels it is important to educate people about Mike Huckabee's economic record so they can call the Arkansas governor and challenge him to reform his economic policies. The ad reflects Club for Growth.Net's conviction that economic growth can only be sustained by lowering the tax burden."
The $200,000 ad buy will run on statewide broadcast and cable television stations in Michigan through January 15."

"Tomorrow" ... Romney's Two-Minute Warning
Mitt Romney hits the Granite State airwaves for his final plea to voters: a two-minute spot that airs tonight. In the ad, he pitches himself as, shocker, the change candidate.
"It's long past time to bring real change to Washington," says Romney, standing outside in the cold New Hampshire air, a gray sky above. "That's never going to happen if all we do is send the same people back to Washington to sit in different chairs."
Romney touts his experience running the Olympics and in business. And taking a page out of the Rudy Giuliani campaign handbook, he throws in a bit of economic and geopolitical fearmongering, asking: "Will someone in China or India take your job? Or will you be selling American products to them? Will your children fear attack from violent Jihadists?"
